“The inspiration for this palette came more from a sentiment versus an actual muse. But if I had to choose a physical representation, I’d say it’s inspired by the essence of Egypt—Cleopatra to be specific. Although she’s portrayed as one of the most beautiful women in history, the truth is, her most powerful qualities were her intelligence and self-creation. She was the original pioneering woman.”—Kat Von D
Oh my! The Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette from Kat Von D has come in the post and it is beautiful! The palette is longer than her other palettes and it does have a bit of weight to it.
The palette has eight colors stuck in the palette and then the loose pigment.
From Left: Bloodmilk, Medusa, Ankh, Queen, Hieroglyph, Nile, Scarab, Venom, Prophet (loose pigment)
Prophet the Loose Pigment…
Now that I have the palette in my hands, I can say I am a bit disappointed. The colors are beautiful and the pigment is a gorgeous color, however, the palette itself is bulky, strangely shaped and when taking out the pigment, it feels unfinished. The colors are not as pigmented in comparison to the metal crush shadows… But they are workable!
